Cairns in detail

Discover the heartland for Australian thrill-seeking, with a trip to the beautiful city of Cairns, a wonderful base to explore the wilderness of upper Queensland. Cairns thrives on tourism and has endless activities for its visitors; from scuba diving trips in the Great Barrier Reef to rainforest trekking adventures and dramatic bungee jump falls.

Of course, Cairns can be enjoyed without getting the adrenaline pumping; visit the regions nature preserves. Head to the Australian Butterfly Sanctuary where over 1,500 delicate butterflies will flicker past your face or spot the endangered Cassowary at the Birdworld Kuranda Park. The Kuranda Koala Gardens is another Cairns favourite. How about a journey through the rainforest canopy? Take a trip on the Skyrail Rainforest Cableway which takes you to the village of Kuranda where you can purchase Aboriginal artworks.

The restaurants of Cairns rank as some of the finest in Australia; don’t miss the chance to feast on an Emu steak.
